How To Treat Chronic Candida Yeast Infection
Greetings. It's Eric Bakker, naturopath fromNew Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietarysupplements. Thanks for checking out my tutorial today.I'm going to do a series of tutorials regarding chronic Candida yeast infection. I did oneyesterday, I think, an FAQ, frequently asked question. How do I know if I have chronicCandida? I've got another question here from a guy in Sydney, Australia. How do I treata chronic Candida yeast infection? Well, let's talk about that today. How you actually caneffectively treat a chronic Candida infection. What are the steps you need to take in orderto nail this thing? Let's go over this now.
First thing I think is important to spellout to you. It's really important for you to look at the holistic picture of your health,your life and health, in general. Many people who come to me for treatment of yeast infection,they basically just want to treat yeast infection. They want to treat the toenail fungus, theywant to treat the vaginal infection, they want to treat the jock itch, or they wantto treat some sort of skin rash they've got. Now that's what they want to treat. They wantto treat one particular thing. Now many practitioners are symptom prescribers. They will just placateto the patient's need and treat that symptom. Medical s are renowned for doing this.You come to a . They will treat the
symptom.I may have mentioned in a previous tutorial. When I was in Australia years ago, I visiteda medical , a friend of me, and there was a sign hanging up quot;Please present withonly one symptom today,quot; which shows you how stupid the medical system is when today theytreat the headache. You come back tomorrow for maybe a period pain. You come back thefollowing day for arthritis or something. As if, nothing is connected in the body. Andthere are still many people who are looking for like natural cures. They're looking forpills for ills. Well, if that's you, get the hell away frommy Candida Crusher channel. I don't really
want you watching my tutorials if you think thatI'm going to give you some magic cure or some magic answer for Candida because it's notgoing to happen. So switch off now. Go and have a look at a lot of the other channels.There are a lot of other people that will certainly tell you how you can cure this thingin five minutes or in half an hour or the 24hour Candida cure. What a load of crap!These things are not possible. You can't cure Candida in 24 hours. If you really believethat, switch off now. Because I'm going to tell you, it's not going to happen, especiallychronic Candida. You need to look at the whole picture.You need to look at everything that is going
on in your health right now. And we're goingto go over a couple of important points that I've written about in Candida Crusher, inmy book. The first thing I want you to look at, which I think is 80 percent of recoveryfor not just chronic Candida, but any kind of chronic condition is you need to look atyour lifestyle. You need to look at what's going on in your life right now. So I've writtena few points down here on paper, and we'll go through these bit by bit.The big things I like people to look at are where the stresses in your life are. Whatare the holes that need plugging up? Do you have issues with people around you? Our biggeststresses in life tend to be people. People
that we work with or work for. People thatwork for us. People that we're close to in relationships, either professionally or personally.People that we're related to, friends, neighbors, all sorts of people, but people tend to beour biggest stress. Most people I know who come to see me as patients have got one personthat's stressing them out. So these are the sort of frictions that need to be resolvedbecause stress has an incredible way of undermining your health by working on slowly eroding youradrenal and thyroid health. By creating hormone imbalances, and these hormone imbalances leadto lots of different problems. So you need to sort these kind of stresses out. You canread a lot more again about stress on ericbakker
Case Study 20 Eric Bakker Chronic Candida Yeast Infection
I'm going to do another case history, andthis is going to be my case history. It's going to be quite different. This is a 25yearoldguy called Eric Bakker. In 1986, he was just turning 26. So this is my own personal story.You might like to hear my personal story on how I came to really develop a burning passionfor helping people like you out there with Candida.You may like to hear my own personal story about the yeast infection I used to have whenI was in my 20s. I used to live by myself in a small house in a place called Brisbanein Australia, and this little house was in a suburb that was prone to flooding. It wascheap rent, and I was working in a flourmill
at the time. I'd been living on my own forabout five years at that point. One week I would work the day shift. One week I'd workthe afternoon shift. And the following week, I would work the night shift.I started to feel increasingly stressed and tired and one winter developed a bad cough.It got worse to the point where I took an antibiotic. My little house was cold and damp,and I had to bail water out of my bedroom after it rained heavily. I did tell you itwas cheap rent. The walls were covered in a thin, moist film that I later discoveredwas mold. My diet wasn't the best at times. I was craving sweet foods, take out, and lotsof bread. Either my bowels were blocked or
I was experiencing diarrhea and lots of gas.I felt terrible, and my health was going downhill fast. My skin started to get itchy and I developeda bad case of athlete's foot and jock itch. To give you a background on all this, a fewyears prior, I had 13 amalgam fillings replaced over a period of two weeks in 1983. I startedto notice that my health was beginning to deteriorate and by early '85, I was feelingincreasingly anxious. I developed skin rashes, athlete's foot, and many manifestations ofa Candida yeast infection, all unbeknown to me at the time, including very strong sweetcravings. I had issues with my girlfriend who thoughtI was a hypochondriac because my health had
deteriorated to the point where I had to seekmedical help. But the was of little help because all the tests results came backnormal, and he wanted me to see a psychiatrist. I knew I wasn't going crazy. I knew that therewas something undermining my health, and I couldn't put a finger on it until I read theYeast Connection by William Crook and then later I read the Missing Diagnosis by Orion Truss. I've read about 50 books since then on Candida, but the first one byCrook was quite a good book. My girlfriend at the time started to doubtme and told me that my problems were all in my head. A view strongly supported by hermother and that I needed to wake up to myself.
See a shrink and take antidepressants. Idecided to end that unsupportive relationship and move out of their flat and had a garagesale a few weekends later to downsize. A naturopath was looking through some of my gear at a garagesale and asked me why I had dark circles under my eyes. I told her about my health and thefirst thing she told me was to get a hair analysis to determine the mercury levels becauseshe thought the mercury fillings being replaced, it could have caused a problem. And she saidthere may be a connection there with that and the Candida.I went to see her and showed her Crook's book, and what she said made a heck of a lotof sense. And I started getting treatment
for my yeast infection. Unfortunately, shedidn't walk me through a proper mercury detoxification, I felt very, very sick, and I had a bad Herxheimerreaction. I had a lot of vomiting and diarrhea for quite a few weeks. And this, in fact,was one of the lowest points in my life. When at one point, I had considered taking my ownlife because I was so unsupported. No one wanted to listen to me. I felt terrible. The told me I was nuts. My mother said I was crazy. My girlfriend didn't listen.Is it any wonder people jump off bridges or do crazy things? If no one is there to listento you at all, all the doors get closed in your face. There's no support at all. What'sthe point in living even? When you're at your
